Hi, I'm Steve! I'm a giant, friendly teddy-bear-wolf-thing. Not new to the fediverse but new to this instance. I'm a former computer science professor living just outside of Pittsburgh, currently working towards earning my OSCP certification.

When I was in college I started with a comp sci major and minor in math. When I finished 5 years later, I had a math and comp sci double-major, and a philosophy and theatre double-minor. I went to grad school around the time of the dot-com bubble-burst, and got a MSci in comp sci, and got into teaching. 10 years later I went back to school for an MDiv in theology, and ended up going back to teaching comp sci. I've "joked" that I'm in my 40's and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

I'm married to @artemis and @owashii, and I'm the luckiest wuff ever because I have the bestest partners ever. =^w^=

I've a wide variety of hobbies and interests, including video games, hording books and vintage tech, and sewing/costuming. I use Pop!_OS, Kali, and Windows 10.

:vim: is better than emacs or nano. There, I said it.​

mh, sponsored youtube video, audio that might activate Alexa, and bad opening joke playing on that. 

This accurately describes something I've experienced. I think I've gotten better about it somehow, but sometimes I literally don't know what I'm feeling. Sometimes I"m like "I think I'm feeling this, but I'm not sure and I don't know why I would be feeling that way."


I played chapter 1. I'll eventually play chapter 2, but lately I just don't have the headspace for anything undertale.

Amazon has a really aggressive hiring campaign going on in my area. I'm half-tempted to try to get the job. I'm sure they need people with experience union-organizing.

William S. Burroughs 

I also very fondly remember the PC game The Dark Eye, based on the works of Poe and featuring Burroughs as a voice actor. That was fun.

William S. Burroughs 

Pleasantly surprised at the amount of books by Burroughs included with the Audible membership, although not Naked Lunch.

Back in the day, I remember listening to a version of Naked Lunch read by the author. That would be a cool thing to find again.

daily reminder that the phrase "carbon footprint" was created by BP in an ad campaign in order to try to shift the blame from themselves onto individual consumers and stifle any collective action against the fossil fuels industry.

husband: *says something corny*
me: *headpats*
husband: don't patronize me.
me: *headscritches*
husband: Scritches are fine.

covid, US stupidity 

Oh FFS, Pittsburgh is having a St. Patrick's Day parade on Sunday, expecting thousands to show up. Just what we need, a drunken super-spreader event.

Time zone is not set properly when I booted tails so I just looked at the clock on my desktop and was all like how the fuck is it almost midnight?!?

Answer: it's not.
